S.C. Legislature - how responsive?

The South Carolina legislature will return to action soon. At whom will they rattle their swords this year?

I just emailed the Ethics Committee of the S.C. House of Representatives.

"I am writing to ask that you put some teeth in the Ethics Laws.

"At Richland 2 School District Amelia McKie owes $57,100 to the S.C. Ethics Commission. She has made only small irregular payments. The Ethics Commission filed a judgment in Richland County Common Pleas Court on 7/10/2019, and the SC DOR has done little or nothing to collect on it, as evidenced by the balance remaining at the high level. S.C. law should be changed to prohibit public office holding by such a debtor. McKie was elected 11/6/2018 and has never taken the oath-of-office legally since filing her SEI on 12/4/2018. Yet she remains in office."
